Between Two Worlds (Special Podcast)

Monday, February 10, 2014


Listen to music between two worlds on this New Sounds program, namely works with elements of classical music-be it orchestra, choral, or chamber music- which also embrace elements of pop, rock and electronic music.  Hear the latest from Son Lux (Ryan Lott), who builds lush orchestral sounding pop music, working with contemporary classical musicians like yMusic to create dramatic and catchy slices of music designed to make classification a challenge.  Also, listen to music from Icelandic keyboard player / composer Olafur Arnalds along with something from the Baltimore-based electronic wizard, Dan Deacon.  That, and more.

Special thanks to our hardworking New Sounds Assistant, Isabel Kim, for making this podcast possible.

I also can't listen to it here, on the website, seemingly for the same reason.
